First Steps for Automating Sales Orders

First steps toward automating sales orders to improve turn-around times and becoming more responsive to clients

In business sales orders are the life blood of a business. However, many organizations who are e-commerce savvy still receive many sales orders manually which then need to be processed manually. Sales order automation using OCR technologies combined with machine learning and data enrichment can remove manual sales order processing.

First Steps


How long, on average, does it take to process manual sales orders?


How many manual sales orders does your organisation receive?


When you receive manual orders are these emailed to your organization and then processed centrally or in different parts of your business where expertise exists to process them?


Does your organization process complex instructions from your client base relating to products and or deliveries?


Do you already process electronic (EDI) sales orders from customers and what issues does this create, if any? The issues, if they exist, will be amplified with manual sales orders
